My Exit: Brett Groff

Brett Groff

Every Monday night our friends at WEXT do this thing called My Exit -- local listeners get to come into the station and program an hour of music. So we thought it'd be fun to find out a little bit about these people and why they picked the songs on their play list.

Here's tonight's person:

Brett Groff from Saratoga Springs.  

How would you descirbe your musical taste?
I enjoy all kinds of music except for Country.  My favorite type of music is New Wave, with most of it coming out of the 80's.  I absolutely love catchy pop melodies and aspire to write one myself.  

Five songs from Brett's My Exit Show:

"Bunker Soldiers" by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) - This is a great song from the 80's with a catchy melody that lyrically conveys something important.  OMD has a knack for getting you to both dance and think at the same time.  

"Night Of The Swallow" by Kate Bush - For me being an aspiring piano player, Kate Bush is my #1 inspiration and this song encapsulates both her ability to tell a story through song and give it an emotional punch.  I find myself getting totally sucked in with it.  

"N.A. Kicker" by Superdrag - This is a rockin song with a great guitar riff.  Superdrag is an overlooked one-hit wonder band from the 90's.  This song shows their great propensity to write catchy melodies, which is something I love.

"Side With The Seeds" by Wilco - The Nels Cline solos in this song...nuff said!

"You Can Come To Me" by The Helio Sequence - Electronic music blended with powerful emotion makes this song and band one of a kind. 

You can hear Brett's My Exit show tonight at 8 on 97.7 or at

Here's how to schedule your own My Exit show on WEXT.
